I had low expectations. I covered my sons eyes for the little bit of violence in the beginning. But I loved the flick. It picked up quick and had my attention the whole time. The stomping was GREAT ......

I went to go see this movie and I had doubts in my head. Of course I wanted to see it because it had some fine looking men in it but for some reason, I thought the acting was going to be whack. But the protagonist (played by Columbus Short) did his thing. He had such emotion in playing his character and it didn't come off forced (in other words, it came off real). The stomping was hot too, no doubt. It mostly a movie for teens and young adults but adults may get something out of it too. Go see it!!!

I am a member of Delta Sigma Theta Sorority, Inc. and I loved the tribute this movie made, not only to our sororities and fraternities, but to HBCUs and our heritage as well! I was so proud to watch this movie with my 9-yr old daughter and explain some of the traditions through out the movie. This movie brought back some WONDERFUL memories of my Pan Hellenic experience, and also inspired my daughter to want to pledge and work on being on the step-team as well... This is a great movie for everyone. It doesn't matter that it is similar to Drumline (also another favorite movie). The similarities just proves the wide range of experiences and life lessons that can be achieved and learned at our HBCUs! Keep the positive movies comin'. You make them, I'll continue to support them. Our children, black and white, need to see the positive, exciting, yet serious side of what an HBCU education can offer!
